. and as richard pointed out, the corruption, the unease of the relationship between the united states and karzai's afghanistan, and the fact that what is the ultimate goal? is it to bring a country that is now logged in perhaps -- >> let me stop you there. you just asked what's the ultimate goal. we have been asking foreign policy -- >> what is it? >> specialists on this set, administration officials, the late richard holbrook, everybody, for years, what's the goal in afghanistan? they don't have a goal in afghanistan. you know why? because it's not about afghanistan. it's about pakistan. this is -- it's ridiculous. we had a goal, and that goal was to rid afghanistan of al qaeda's power structure. we succeeded. >> right. >> and then we moved. then we moved the goal post. and now it's to rebuild a country with, again, we're going into another decade partnership with one of the most corrupt leaders on the planet. it makes no sense. we're wasting $2 billion a week. and young americans are dying every every week. >> you're right. we did move the goal post in afghanistan from essentially getting rid
the united states senate. matt by yesterday with the times said this was not a johnsonian moment, in fact it looked quite weak. historically, do you agree with matt by? do you agree with what sam stein said? how significant is it for barack obama to come out and say that he supports gay marriage, despite the fact that he says i'm going to allow states to ban it, despite the fact he said something that we all knew before he talked to robin roberts? >> well, it's not 1957, and it's not by far obviously '64 or '65 where you had federal legislation undoing jim crow and remarkably strong barriers to racial justice. those achievements are not within hailing distance of this. because what the president did was make a rhetorical statement that he -- i think sam has a good point. this is important to a lot of americans. and it signals the president's support of these initiatives, whether he actually puts any political or governmental power attempts behind it is another question. but rhetorically, this is a good thing for libertyianism, people who support the rights of all americans to participate
nearly a year and a half of slaughter, it's far past time for the united states to begin to lead. the united states should work with partners to organize and arm syrian opposition groups to defend themselves. the bloodshed makes clear our goal must be a new syrian government that contributes to peace in the middle east and represents the brave syrian people. we can stop there for a moment. you know what -- >> the chairman of the joint chiefs was on cnn yesterday as well. i think this is the president, not because of what john mccain is saying or what mitt romney is saying but because he knows, i believe, it is time to let assad know that time for talking is over. military action may be around the corner. this is what the chairman of the joint chief said on sunday. >> my job is to provide the chief with options. i think the military option should be considered. i think -- but, my preference, of course, always, as a senior military leader would be the international community could find ways of increasing the pressure on asaid to do the right thing and step aside. >> you have the ch
to talk about. >>> "the new york times" of course, the headline, 10 allies join the united states in a move to expel syrian diplomats. obviously, the pressure is ramping up. anan is just sweeping aside, according to "the new york times," and other reports, suggestions by assad that he had nothing to do with the attacks, the door-to-door massacres. unbelievable. wait until we get to news and we'll have a discussion. >> a lot of moving parts even overnight. the u.n. security council will meet today to discuss the situation, but there is little hope that diplomats in new york can do anything to stop the increasingly brutal conflict. just this morning russia and china insisted they will block any effort by the council to enforce military intervention. russia has been a longtime ally of syria and has economic interests in the country. the fighting, meanwhile, rages on. more than a month after a cease-fire was supposed to go into effect. today, activists reported that syrian troops began shelling suburbs of damascus and also the central city of homs. the violence reached new heights las
. it is time for the news you can't use. the president of the united states will be on "the view" today. they released a clip for us. a pop quiz. his knowledge of pop culture. >> we know you know a lot about politics and the law. do you know about pop culture? >> we'll find out. >> i have some questions. >> fire away. >> let's see what you have been reading. which kardashian was only married for 72 days? >> that would be kim. >> very good.

imaging of bangor, maine. we have customers all over the united states. we rely on the postal service for everything that we do. the eastern maine processing facility is vital to our operation and our success. if we lose this processing facility we could lose clientele because of increased mailing times. we would have to consider layoffs as a result of that. closure of this plant will affect all of us. ♪ >>> it's time for a little news you can't use. if you have been paying attention you know about the chinese human rights activist who escaped house arrest. he's blind. we are told he's been offered safety and comfort by the united states. we are not sure where. somewhere within china. hillary clinton is now over there dealing with it on a previously scheduled trip. steven colbert talked about the difficult dance the u.s. has to do. we got chen guangcheng or as i will call him, eric. eric is a total bad ass. this was guarded by 90 to 100 police. he feigned illness lulling guards into complacency and slipped out of the house and managed to cross the river and rendezvoused with friend
to the president of the united states. 49% went to an inmate in texas. >> and he pulled a few counties. >> he did. 10 of the state's 55 counties went to that gentleman, keith judd. >> now, hillary won west virginia -- >> by 41 points. >> after the race was over, by the way. >> after the race was over. so, ed, does barack obama put west virginia in the undecided column? >> i wouldn't spend a lot of time there. but you can't always judge those type of elections. mayor nutter in philadelphia, he's done a good job, very popular. in the primary, he ran against a guy who had just gotten out of federal prison and who owed $500,000 in back taxes. that guy got 26% of the vote. >> how does that happen? >> but the mayor wins big in the general election. >> but west virginia is one of those weird states. west virginia used to be a solid democratic state. it's going more republican. >> we hadn't lost -- until al gore lost west virginia, we won six straight times in west virginia. >> so a lot of things going on. paul crudeman coming up. we'll get together hits of my greatest hits and all of my compliments of t
. >> this is joe biden yesterday with david gregory. >> i am vice president of the united states of america. the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual partners, are entitled to the same rights, all the civil rights and all the civil liberties. and i don't see much of a distinction beyond that. >> the white house said that the vice president was saying what the president had said previously, that committed and loving same-sex couples deserve the same rights and protections enjoyed by all americans. we oppose any efforts to roll back those rights, et cetera, et cetera. was this calculated, jim? did vice president biden know what he was saying or was this joe biden being joe biden? >> it certainly seems like it was joe biden being joe biden, given how much scrambling there was after he made those remarks. and we talked to a lot of folks yesterday in the gay rights community. and they are frustrated because they want the president to come out and unequivocally state he is for gay marriage. and he has no
put gasoline in our cars. to jimmy carter's credit, he is the only president of the united states since the 1970s who has had a detailed outline of an energy plan. >> this is true. >> that had we adopted his plan, in 1977 and 1978, we would be far better off internationally today. >> right. >> far better off. >> domestically we'd be far better off. >> absolutely. we'd have weaned ourselves off of foreign oil. >>> elizabeth warren and incumbent republican senator scott brown are using the president in their campaign messages. warren, who was instrumental in the creation of the new consumer financial protection bureau touts her work with the president -- >> this is before or after he fired her? >> you stop it. >> kicked her out of the white house. >> that's not what happened at all. the republicans would not have her. >> hold on one second. yes, yes, yes, ok. hey, this isn't going to work out, elizabeth. thank you for coming by. >> stop it right now. you know she created probably one of the most important -- >> industry leaders drove her off. >> they did. >> she should have run it.
was running for governor the same lines he's trying to sell to the united states and it just didn't happen that way. we were -- he told us he would be about creating more jobs. we were 47th out of 50 in job creation during his time in office. he said he would shrink government and make it more first quarter. in fact, it grew. he told us he would bring us fiscal stability, and he left us in debt. so the record which is relevant and indeed his only experience in public leadership, in government leadership, doesn't point to the case he's trying to sell to the american people today. >> joe, that's the message. last two weeks of the campaign, what the governor just said. that's it. >> you need to do that every six months. >> governor patrick, do you know what the unemployment rate in massachusetts was when mitt romney left office? >> i think when he left office, it was in the 4s. i want to say 4.3, about what the national average is. >> that's pretty good. >> is that about right? yeah. it was about -- by the time he left, it was about what the national rate was. i think it had trailed the natio
this. obesity is a nationwide problem, and all over the united states, public health officials are wringing their hands saying, oh this is terrible. new york city is not about wringing your hands. it's about doing something. i think that's what the public wants the mayor to do. his proposal goes to the board later in june. since he hired everyone, i think it's going to go through. and i think it's a great idea. does anyone want to challenge me on that? >> convenience stores are excluded from this? >> there's a lot of exclusions. >> so i can still get a big gulp? >> that was my question. >> this isn't as big as it gets when you go to some of these places. and it like drinking a big glass of sugar, of poison. >> you know, obviously, civil liberties, all this stuff. obesity, obviously this show is about politics. >> you just dismiss civil liberties. >> no, no, no. >> freedom. nah. >> how many hours have you debated health care on the show? you solve obesity, you solve health care. done. it's that simple. and it's so -- you know, the calories and the -- just in those huge, huge dri
in kabul just a few weeks ago. >> now, did he have to buy some -- did the united states have to buy some opium from afghanistan, richard, to karzai to play ball with us? >> it was less than successful. the united states is losing control of nato over this issue because we all know we're getting out. we're at least drawing down dramatically. the question is how fast and all that. plus it doesn't help when the pakistanis won't agree to continue supply routes, essentially holding nato to ransom. it's very hard to keep control because essentially the administration has decided this was a bad bet. they're walking back from the large buildup in afghanistan. what you're beginning to see is people are racing to the exit. this is not a successful policy. >> richard, what do you think of the story that the obama administration planted in "the new york times" yesterday where they talk about barack obama decided in 2009 this wasn't working? that was the most ham-fisted story in "the times" i've ever seen. he screwed up by tripling the number of troops and now they're claiming it was all part of a bi
the possibility of a bungling of this case. an embarrassment for the united states. and some tough questions for the obama administration. but i think more importantly, there's going to be second guessing. and of course, republicans already overreaching in their second guessing. now is the time i, i would say, to follow eisenhower and other leaders' beliefs that politics sometimes should stop at the water's edge. but in this case, the obama administration has some really tough decisions to make about this dissident. >> yeah. i think so, joe. i think we have to wait and see how this plays out. i believe china has a common interest with us. i think they want this guy out, where he can't do any harm internally, and i think we want him out. and i think it will have a good resolution. >> so you think if we go ahead and get him out, work a deal, you don't think that will hurt our relationship with china in the long run? >> no. i think it's actually in their interest. i don't think they want him there as a symbol. >> yeah. maybe so. >>> all right, me >>> all right, mika. we have some business news
ambassador to the united states sir peter westmacott. we'll ask him what will happen in season three in "downton abby." also, actress brooklyn decker will be here. donny will not. we will escort him from the building. >>> coming up next, the top stories in the politico playbook. we have vandehei here? >> i hope not. >> i hope not. oh, god. hopefully it's patrick or gavin, the crazy guy with all the cats. >>> but first, bill karins has a check on the forecast. bill, tell me it's going to get nicer today. >> your wish is going to be granted. we'll see beautiful weather heading to areas of the east that really struggled over the last couple of days. we have one more rainy morning for you up there in new england. i'll show that you in a second. but overall, the summer weather pattern goes from the rockies to the southeast. and it is going to continue if not spread over the days ahead. so where is it raining this morning? we have some downpours heading through coastal connecticut, just sort of hartford. providence, you'll get some rain shortly. and all of eastern mass. the other spot with
's a subject near and dear to your heart. >> explain why the united states has more flexibility than the european countries. >> put the third slide up for a half second if you can. you'll see. here you go. we have lower debt to gdp. these countries are all over 100%. we have not crossed the rubicon in terms of too much debt. our deficits are too high. >> we have a vibrant economy. >> and we have a vibrant economy. >> nobody is running away from the dollar despite the massive deficits. it looks like germany and the united states right now are the two safe bets on the planet. >> correct. germany interest rates and u.s. interest rates are all-time lows. we are considered the safe haven. >> what are the odds the greeks get out of the euro? >> the odds are 50%. a little over 50%. yesterday, they said we want to keep them in. there's pressure to keep them in. >>> up next, willie's news you can't use. we'll be right back. kiwi. soy milk. impulse buy. gift horse. king crab. rhubarb pie. lettuce shower. made by bees. toucan sam. that's not cheese. grass fed. curry. gingersnaps. soup can tower
the president of the united states, what the leader of the whole economy must be concerned about, is not the short-term return of profits to the few, but a long-term economy that creates jobs for the many. >> let's start down that road. why has unemployment come down? unemployment's come down? because participation in the workforce is at the lowest point it's been in three decades. people are retiring early because they can't find a job. people have given up looking. if you look at the gallup surveys, the number of those who are underemployed and quit looking is 19%. this is a disastrous administration, and candidly if you want to get into a fight over debt in an administration which raised the national debt from 37% of the economy to 47% of the economy in three and a half years. this is why obama will have a hard time this fall. he can't fight over jobs because he isn't creating them. he can't fight over debt, and he has policies that people find unacceptable and romney has a straightforward case. can you afford four more years of barack obama? can you afford four more years of
be able to get married in the united states? >> oh -- >> yes, i do. >> have you said that publicly before? >> i don't know if i have been asked publicly. >> jay carney faced questions on the president's position. he said the president's views are, quote, i love this word for a 50-year-old man, evolving. >> very few people think the president is not going to, after november, whether he's reelected or not come out in favor of same-sex marriage. why not come out and say it and let voters decide? it seems cynical to hide it until after the election. >> i think the president's position is well known. he's spoken to this. it's gotten a great deal of coverage. i don't have an update to provide you on the president's position. it is what it was. >> it's rare saying i'm getting ready to change my mind. you have really savaged mitt romney for changing his mind. i'm wondering, if you don't run some risk of looking kind of too clever. >> i don't have an update for you on the president's personal views. it's the answer he has. i don't have a new answer for you. >> who? how? what now? the president's p
with them than the president of the united states gets along with speaker boehner. >> and the results are 47 out of 50. just stay right at 47. 47. >> i don't think that sells. >> and then there's health care. >> you know, george hw bush, remember, against bill clinton, always tried to say arkansas ranks 49th in this and 48th in this. they tried to recreate frankly what bush 41 did to dukakis in the massachusetts miracle. they tried to do it against clinton and it didn't work. i'm skeptical whether going after the massachusetts record would work as well. it's an interesting little conversation we're having. i don't know. it didn't work when republicans tried this to bill clinton in '92. just throwing that out there. >> didn't happen in '92. i remember the commercials of the grim landscape. i have to say, mika, this conversation reminds me of something my grandma told me when i was a young kid, 4 or 5, and she would say, joey, hunting rabbit ain't so fun when the rabbit got the gun. >> you had a wise grandmother. >> i said you're right, grandma. >> she also tell you vote democratic, joe. >> ye
this experience that you're going to bring to the united states. i think that's great. i guess my question is, why didn't you bring this to massachusetts, governor, when you were 47th out of 50th? there are a lot of people that are angry in massachusetts right now that you had the colonel's secret formula and you kept it locked up in the safe while they went four years without the type of jobs that -- that's a good approach. also, and i think this is really important. i think you bring up a great point. you can say, he doesn't get it. without going after the same venture capitalists who are funding your campaign. you can say -- i mean, you can make up -- and you know this. you can make up so many funny campaigns. that talk about the elevator, the car elevators, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera, but that had a stinging bit of truth to it. but i'm just telling you, this bain capital attack does not work. >> your massachusetts thing is a great example, yeah. >> the massachusetts attack works. and also saying the guy doesn't get get it. because obama's other great line was, how can you fix this problem
don't think the guy with the rack coop tail could be president of the united states? that's a deep insight. thank you for emailing that one. it's wonderful. how about one more, tower? >> deborah in houston. i'm baking an old-fashioned pineapple filled butter cake for my father's birthday. >> that gives me the perfect opportunity on this may 10 to wish my own father a very happy birthday. he's not 97, but he's pushing it. happy birthday, dad. "morning joe" starts right now. >> what i believe in my faith is that a man and a woman, when they get married, are performing something before god. and it's not simply the two-persons who are men. i believe that marriage is between is a man and a woman. as a christian, it's to me a sacred union. i struggle with this. i have friends. i have people who work for me who are in powerful, strong, long-lasting gay or lesbian unions. and they are extraordinary people. i have to tell you that over the course of several years, as i talk to friends and family and neighbors, when i think about members of my own staff who are incredibly committed in monoga
